A coin toss? Seriously? This is how we decide our children’s educational futures?
The race for a Richland School Board seat was a dead heat, and a coin toss is how the owner of that seat was determined. This might have called for a different, perhaps unique action, such as a shared term or two seats at the table.
Let this be a lesson to the almost 70 percent of registered voters who, for whatever reason, couldn’t take the time to fill out the form and mail it in: You just gave up your choice.
Remember this when it comes time to vote for president next year. Voting is a privilege and a right. Don’t give it up.
Never miss a local story.
